Jan 9: Birding in the most unusual places

We arrived back from the Gold Coast and took our daughter to a gymnastics try-out lesson in Mansfield. Looking at Google Maps, I decided to wander along to Bulimba Creek and see what birds I could see. I ended up an an industrial estate, but running through it was a sewage solid waste interceptor, set in a small creek. With a foul smell, this seemed like a good birding spot. I spent half an hour or so, and although I didn’t see anything particularly special this was a place worth visiting while our daughter is in gymnastics class in future.

My year list at the end of the day was 170 species. I spent 32 minutes birding, walked 1.573 km and drove 0 km (birding was incidental).
